Winter Fun Tag

I was asked it I had wanted to join a tag swap hosted by my friend Stephanie.
Stephanie usually put on art journal challenges for each other, but we kind of slacked on this last year.
My friend Debbie and I decided to join in!!!
The theme was "Winter in Thunder Bay" and was to be created with our mixed medium supplies.
When I first heard the theme, I thought of skating because I loved to skate as a young girl and taught myself some pretty awesome moves, teehee.

 Here is my completed tag.
I used a white tag and used a tree stencil and used distress ink for the background.
I then used a stencil with tiny dots and added glass bead gel to make the tiny snowflakes.
I wanted to add some stars as I enjoyed skating at night...but I didn't have some....but figured it is art, so I made the wood veneer snowflakes into my stars :)
Lastly I added the 1/2 crystals to the background.

I also used Wink of Stella on the ice.
It is hard to see in this photo, but it is there.

Copic was having a colour challenge.
It was to use only 3 colours.
This month the colours were BV02, B91 and V17.
Besides her hair and skin colour those are the only 3 colours I used on this adorable Angie Blom image from her Angiegirl collection.
I LOVE her images.

Here is my completed tag.
Guess what....I also did a process video on how I made this tag!!
It has been awhile since I did a process video.

I hope you all have a very Creative Day :)
